“An inebriated driver is at a greater risk of breaking road rules and fall prey to acts like road rage, speeding, jumping traffic signals and violating other road safety norms.”
Drinking and driving is a choice that a driver makes and therefore it is an intentional act as a drunk driver knows or should know that getting behind the wheel will likely cause serious injury or death to him/herself or innocent people on the road ways.Driving comes with a lot of responsibility,however rapid motorization rates and ambivalent attitude towards alcohol consumption is resulting in drastic increase in drunk driving as a major cause for road traffic injuries, and other road safety hazards.
Today drunk driving does not remain to be a mere law and order problem but has become a public health issue , a behavioural problem that is affecting people from all age groups, sections, strata and gender of society.
CADD is not against drinking for legal adults. However, we do not support the violent act of drinking and driving. CADD wants to help masses make an informed and intelligent choice of driving sober and address several relevant issues relating to enforcement, legislation and awareness simultaneously contributing to bettering the road safety standards in the country.
